New Summoner’s Cup design may have been leaked through a League ward skin

Riot hasn't officially revealed the trophy's new look yet.

Earlier this month, it was announced by Riot Games that League of Legends prestigious World Championship trophy, the Summoners Cup, is getting a face-lift this season. And now, the design of the trophy may have been leaked through a ward skin on Leagues Public Beta Environment (PBE). 

A new ward skin featuring the potential redesign of the Summoners Cup has made its way onto the PBE without the trophy having been officially revealed by Riot. The leaked redesign was first discovered by League YouTuber Julex Gameplays, who posted a comparison of the two editions of the Summoners Cup to their Twitter profile. 

Last week, Riot revealed that the company entered a multi-year partnership with jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. as the official trophy designer of the Summoners Cup. In that announcement, Riot and Tiffany teased the new design of the Summoners Cup. It sports a more rigid design in comparison to years past, with the main chalice-like body of the trophy becoming more angular and flat. 

Judging by the leaked ward skin on Leagues PBE, the Summoners Cup still has its iconic open top, although its flat top is more pronounced in its newer version. Additionally, the Summoners Cup now sports silver piping around its body.
